STAIN REMOVAL GENERAL PROCEDURE

Always rub or brush lightly from the outer edge toward the center of the stain to prevent spreading or causing “the ring” when using solvents, especially on twist rugs and pile carpets.

STAIN REMOVAL PACKAGE TO KEEP ON HAND
You must move quickly, so keep a small container with the following items close:

  • Clean cloths
  • Sponges
  • Paper Towels
HOW TO CLEAN STAINS

Work quickly to avoid stain setting in.

  • Blot up excess spills with paper towels. Do not rub.
  • Do not soak.
  • Pat with paper towels. Dry with fan.
  • Restore pile with clothes brush.
BLOTTING & STAIN REMOVING
When spills occur, dilute with plenty of water. Next, blot from the edge of the spill towards the center. Avoid rubbing the area. For solid spills, take a spoon and carefully scoop up the material. It is always best to attack the spill immediately.
